Jenny at Home is Where You Start From tagged me with this fun little meme:

Book Meme


  1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the next three sentences.
  5. Tag five people.
Nestled among Dh's law journals and comic books on the nearest shelf was a book I had bought for Riley to read when she's older.

Even though all Scotland seemed to be against him and his decision not to run, Eric had stuck to his decision. Eric was soft-spoken and still a little shy, but there was no way other people's opinions could cause him to do something he didn't think was right or stop him from doing something he felt God had called him to.

In late December 1937, Eric loaded his luggage onto a riverboat. The time for him to leave had come.

Hi Dawn!

I don't mind at all if you link to my blog. When you mentioned a book meme, I got a little worried that I would have to admit to the world that I've been too tired lately to read much (besides to my kids.) This meme is much less threatening. :D

I'm so glad that the vanicream is working for you! Eczema is such a pain.

Now I am wondering what book you are reading. Is it about Eric the Red?

Tina said…
DUH!!! I read it was a comic book, but it is about Eric the Red? :o)LOL

This is amazing. Those three sentences just sum up the book don't they.
